PTTI will be hosted both an in-person and on-demand. Individual technical presentations must be pre-recorded and uploaded with slides to the meeting website for viewing, at a time of attendees choosing. Recorded presentation videos are for registrants only and will NOT be included in the final conference proceedings. All PTTI authors are required to provide a recorded presentation.

Submission of Completed Presentation/Paper for Publication in the Conference Proceedings

Presentation videos submitted for the ION’s virtual conference will NOT be included in the conference proceedings. You must submit your final presentation slides and (optional) final papers by February 5 if you desire to have them included in the official conference proceedings as outlined below.

Note: Your final technical paper should be reflective of your original abstract.  Papers not representative of the original abstract submitted will NOT be included in the conference proceedings, regardless of whether or not they were presented at the conference.  Additionally, this will affect the acceptance of future abstracts for ION conferences.

Please use the Abstract Management Portal to provide the ION with the following documents:

  1. Copyright Release ION Proceedings & Media Authorization/License Form AND
  2. PDF versions of your final presentation, and (optional) paper. The paper, if submitted, should be formatted according to the Paper Preparation Instructions. 

Please note that only authors who submit the required slide presentation files, Copyright Release ION Proceedings & Media Authorization/License Form, and register for the conference will have their presentation (and optional paper) published in the conference proceedings. 

Per publication policy, presentations not presented at the conference will not be published in the conference proceedings for any reason. We encourage you to make alternative arrangements for a co-author to present on your behalf if you foresee any reason why you may not be able to participate as originally scheduled. Remember that only co-authors listed on the presentation will be permitted to present in your place, and alternative presenters are still required to be registered if they are the presenter.

On behalf of the PTTI organizing committee, thank you for your participation.
